My mom passed away around 5:30 p.m. PST or 7:30 a.m. August 21 Bangkok time. I’m taking the 11 p.m. flight out tonight. It’s a non-stop from LAX to BKK so there will be no update until I get there. If you’d like to do anything, please check out Thai Red Cross Society website and make a donation. That’s my mom’s favorite charity. May it be meals for the infirmed monks, or disaster relief.

Mom has been sleeping on and off most of the day today. Not much to report but the lung infection is still there and there seems to be something else going on as well. Well, let’s see what I’ve been up to since the last time we talked. Wednesday, we moved mom from BNH to Chulalongkorn Hospital. Just as we were ready to move her, mom went and developed a high fever so they kept her a few more hours.

Another sign of madness. I just paid $3 for 1 hour of internet at the hospital, thinking that I can catch people at the office and do a little work while we wait to transfer my mom. It’s 11 a.m. here. For some reasons I thought it’s 9 a.m. PST…when it is actually 9 p.m. Somebody needs her Starbucks. But since I already paid for it, I might as well just use up the hour. * There has been as
